The OnePlus 3 is probably going to be sold as the next “flagship killer,” a phone billed as being better than any other high-end handset out there and more affordable than other leading devices. But if there’s one thing the OnePlus 3 might not “kill,” it’s smartphone design. A new leak showing what seems to be official press renders of the handset suggest the device is more like the lovechild of an iPhone 6s and an HTC 10.

The image was posted online by well-known leaker Evan Blass, and it shows both the front and the back of the handset. Considering Blass’ track record, one would be inclined to say it’s likely that we’re looking at the final design of the OnePlus 3. And yes, the design in this picture is similar to the OnePlus 3 prototypes shown in recent leaks.

But Engadget points out that the image might be a decoy, simply meant to get people talking about the phone.

The OnePlus 3’s slim design and metallic finish will instantly remind you of the iPhone 6s. Then the rear antenna design and camera placement are similar to what HTC has done with its flagship line of devices, including the HTC 10.

On the front, there’s a physical home button that probably houses a fingerprint sensor, and there’s an USB-C port on the bottom. A regular 3.5mm headphone jack can be easily seen as well.

Blass also revealed some of the handset’s specs which make the OnePlus 3 even more appealing than it already was. The phone supposedly packs an AMOLED screen and has a huge 3,000 mAh battery.

The OnePlus 3 is supposedly going to be unveiled by the end of May and start selling early next month, according to recent reports, but OnePlus hasn’t yet announced anything at this point.
